|From The Publisher*||Slowly, silently, now the moon |
Walks the night in her silver shoon;
This way, and that, she peers, and sees
Silver fruit upon silver trees;
One spring evening, the fairies gather in the woods. Two sleepy children join in the parade to a wonderful, dream-like fairy party.
Illustrated by bright new talent, Carolina Rabei, this Walter de la Mare poem is brought to life with shimmery, ethereal illustrations, making it the perfect book for bedtime. One of four seasonal Walter de la Mare picture books that form a set, each with complementing colour palates and illustrations by rising young star Carolina.
|Biographical Note||Carolina Rabei was born in 1989 in Moldova. She moved to Cambridge, England in September 2012 to complete an MA in illustration.
